Here is an example of the little finishing lures that i turn. this is one out of tiger maple. the kit for turning these is available at Woodcraft and this is just a great little project. Especially if you have kids or really anyone this is just a really fun and simple project. they work too so watch out for the hooks because they are razor sharp! its pretty fun too with the eyes because you can just carve those with a carving tool like i did. as i said above this is a tiger maple one and the finish is General Finishes danish oil followed by 5 coats of shellac. i have also make these out of lacewood, and walnut before as well as another one double dyed out out tiger maple but they seem to leave my hands too fast for me to get them up. this one is for my uncle who loves fishing.
